right now. the contract dispute over benefits for un workers at raleys stores. . thousands of workers on strike right now. the contract dispute over benefits for union works at raily's grocery stores. >> and cleaning up after super storm sandy's aftermath where people now, will they have power? we'll have a live report from statten island. >> the beginning of november. we got 80 degrees roading -- readings by this afternoon. warmer still for the start of the workweek. a look at the seven-day forecast coming up. >> it's 8:30 on sunday, november 4th. we fell back an hour overnight. >> i was up nervous half of the night wondering if it was back, ford -- forward, back, forward. never can quite feel comfortable. we have a great show ahead this morning, we're going to talk at about proposition 32, one of the most vocal debates going into tuesday's election.
8:31am
the question about political money in california. >> and that is one of the most confusing. we have that and we're going to start with developing news now in northern california. you go to the dreseer -- grocery store and may find out about this. >> the raley's supermarket chain is out on strike. contracts broke down and the united food and commercial worker's union started picketing. >> the two sides have been arguing over a proposed wage freeze and end to premium pay on sundays and changes in medical benefits for 7,000 workers. >> and this is important to me. i have two daughters trying to put to school. >> they need to come to an agreement. >> they extended the old contract for three days, but union negotiators call it a delaying tactic. the supermarket chain needs to cut cost because of a weak economy and competition from non-unionized companies like wal-mart. this morning, a driver is
8:32am
under arrest in santa rosa after allegedly hitting a pedestrian and speeding away. the police say the car hit a man shortly after midnight near the intersection of gurnville road and coffee lane. that man has life-threatening injuries. he was take tonight hospital and a witness reported seeing the car. the police founded and arrested the driver. thirty-year-old christian penna is charged with felony hit-and- run and dui. the chapter of the american red cross is sending more emergency response vehicles to new york. >> that's right, the vehicles can serve up to 3,000 meals a day. they supplied 3,000 volunteers and the three vehicles will be driven by teams of two volunteers leaving from fairfield, oakland, and burling game later today. and these are the latest numbers when it comes to super storm sandia. they're on the ground. meanwhile, the defense
8:33am
department started to set up mobile fuel stations around the new york city metro area where they plan to distribute 12 million gallons of gasoline to run generators. the death toll stands at 113. meanwhile, it's been nearly a week since sandy hit. how are things coming along? >> he's live in stat -- he's live in staten island this morning and how many people in new york are without power? good morning to you. about 800,000 people in the new york city area are still without power. although that is down from the peak of 2.2 million on tuesday. fortunately, there is some good news. that is the silence that took over after the storm and has been replaced with sounds of the recovery. we have city crews working overnight and lining every street here in staten island. everything from sofas to a
8:34am
filing cabinet. there are hundreds and hundreds of plastic garbage bags. not only yesterday, but today as well and this child's stuffed any male is damp from the storm. and things like in this are on every block here in this neighborhood. the residents say the storm surge was at least 10 fight high. and back to you. >> how much of the transportations there is back up and running? that was a huge problem? >> the subway lines, 80% of them are back up and rung today, although there are tunnels still under water, and of course, that is a huge concern. it's popular in the heart of the city and surrounding suburbs and being in a cab myself, i spoke to the driver.
8:35am
he said it's hard to find a place to fuel up driving 45 minutes to an hour to connecticut to find a gas station with a reasonable wait. there are people waiting in line that stretch as far as 10 city blocks. obviously, that equates to several hours in line and waiting at some gas stations that don't have fuel right now. there are a lot of people waiting in line knowing they're out and hoping the next shipment may come while they're waiting in line. >> the things we take for granted. live in staten island, thank you. the presidential race continues to be very close in the latest opinion polls. the new "washington post" abc news tracking poll has president obama and mitt romney in a statistical tie nationally. the republican nominee has a 49 to 48% edge. more likely voters trust romney to handle the economy. when it comes to understanding the economic problems the americans are facing, well, most people think that mr. obama has the edge on that.
8:36am
they have obama living 51-41%. >> and with numbers like that, both parties are out urging people to vote early. in many state turnout, early voting has been heavy. in california, oakland, for example, the early voter turnout is much slower than in 2008. at the alameda county courthouse, the register said the line was only about 20 people long. compare that with 2008 when there were 5 to 600 people waiting to vote and the lines were around the block. jury deliberations are expected to resume tomorrow in a trial of a former san jose principal. lynn -- she's charged with failing to report greg chandler. chandler is a teacher who has been convicted of committing lewd acts on a second grader in 2011. oakland city council is look at covering up the antigraffiti laws. proposed changes include making graffiti vandalism a
8:37am
misdemeanor instead of a simple infraction. it would hold parents of underage violators financially responsible and give frequently targeted business access to a city cleanup fund. the property owners will have 10 days to clean up graffiti. still to come, a blow to the office. >> and the bay area institution that is celebrating with live music and skeletons. >> the ultimate goal is to be able to quiet the voices of the working people as a whole. >> the biggest threat to union power in california. the debate over prop 32. the conversation with yes on proper 32 next. >> and the live pictures behind me tell the weather story. going to be a gorgeous sunday across the bay area. we're watching closely the next few days and could see record highs. things change dramatically. a look at the seven-day forecast coming up.
8:38am
. good morning. it's going to be a great day to get outside. temperatures in the 50s, cranking things up to 70s, low 80s by later on this afternoon. we're starting a warming trend. ,
8:39am
. we're taking a live look right now. a picket line outside of a
8:40am
raily's supermarket in san pablo. union workers there are on strike. that is after a midnight deadline came and went without any agreement between that union and the openers. a lot of the dispute is about changes in benefits. the supermarket chain said the problem is the economy has been rough and they're dealing with a lot of competition and non- unionized businesses like wal- mart. >> that's right. and meanwhile, this weekend's labor organizations are rallying around proposition 32. >> union members gathered yesterday in oakland. it would prohibit unions and corporations from making contributions to candidates. supporters of the measures said they have to influence special interests and opponents target unions with no impact on wealthy individuals or super pact. >> and that is in a way right
8:41am
now. we believe -- we could not have the big money. >> and prop 32. the supporter of the measure joining us live in studio. >> a former chairman of the republican party sat down and told us why you should vote for proposition 32. >> why. why should people vote for this? >> it gives the union members the right to decide whether or not he wants his money spent for certain candidate or campaigning. right now, they don't have that voice. we give them that voice. the union officials don't want their union members to have that ability. >> and -- . >> 32 with bar. using union dues for political purposes? >> right and that would give him the choice. >> exactly right. >> and they can't give the money directly to political campaigns. they can't form the independent
8:42am
pacts. they make the contributions to political campaigns and that is being lost in this discussion. the other major problem is that they say look who is backing 32. they say oil touches -- companies. go look at the supporters of proposition 32 and see if you see the oil companies are supporting the thing. the whole campaign is based on misinformation. >> let's go to the root of what this is about. we saw this when -- governor schwarzenegger had to much of a say in sacramento and the local elects, whether the california teacher's association or prison guards or other numbers. this was an attempt to curtail their power, state, and local. isn't it? >> and -- . >> thanks. >> pardon me. >> the goal is the same. >> the goal of this one limits both corporations and unions. and unions said wait a second, this is unfair and applies to
8:43am
us. the unions and the backers said you're right. this applies equally to corporations and unions. >> and there are a lot exempt like super packs. that is the crux of the problem for a lot of people. >> that is not called the exemption in the initiative, but the first amendment. as i indicated before, as can you have super packs giving to independent expenditures, can you also have the unions giving pursuant independent signatures. there is nothing that limits that in this initiative and that is what is being lost in this discussion by the distortions that the people are trying to put out there. >> what we say, if you look at our, it's our discussion of it, we say go read the initiative. if you look at the no on 32, you won't see references at all to the initiative. they trying to distort what is going. >> when you read it, it was confusing. >> right. >> exactly.
8:44am
>> who would bay billions to get this past? >> and that, again, incredible distortion. the special interest, the public unions are spending up to $70 million to get this defeated. the people on the other side, go look at the supporters, even go look at the no on 32 and people who did redistrict, open primary. people for political reform. >> what we have here is a battle in what they trying to do, reshape the political landscape of california. >> correct. >> what is it you see? >> we see more of the money for political campaigns coming from within the district and you have over 70% of the funds coming from sacramento to the campaigning. we believe by reducing -- reducing the number of corp ration contributions directly to the candidates, the voice of the people in districts will be heard and they will have the
8:45am
right to decide how their money will be spent. >> and that is confusing. >> it seems to go back and forth. we have the no on prop 32 people in the next half hour. listen to both sides and is the down and try to figure it out like we can did. >> good luck. >> okay. and we're going to -- . >> we do know b however, is weather. elizabeth? >> it's going to be nice today. >> and see if you can get outside and enjoy it for a bit. hopefully can you and this is the beginning of a warm stretch across the bay area on to monday and we could see record high school from the beginning of the first two days. the temperatures out of the door, 59 degrees in san francisco. we're seeing a lot of mid-50s, 55 in oakland; 54 in concord. the numbers are cranking up this afternoon. and 70s, low 80s, yeah, even along the coast. we're going to see highs about
8:46am
72 degrees and lots of sunshine. the sunshine across the board. coast bay and inland. why? it's because of the ridge of high pressure. you can see what is going on. no rain in our immediate forecast. now, like i have been saying, we're going to see dramatic changes by the back half of the workweek on thursday and friday. these temperatures are going to take a nose dive. quite a bit, in fact, and we have a good chance of rain across the bay area. let's not focus on that now. first, we'll talk about this afternoon's highs. we're going to see 70s and 80s everywhere you g.82 in fairfield and 82 in santa rosa; 77 degrees in oakland and mid- 70s as well. if you're cruising around san francisco, so, this is the forecast over the next couple of days. so, the warmest day is shaping up right now to be monday. and we're really closely watching these next couple of days. the temperatures are saying they could be record breakers, especially in our inland spots. notice 80s, upper 80s, and we can squeeze out a couple of low 90s in some areas. otherwise, tuesday, wednesday,
8:47am
wednesday's going to be our transitional day and that is when the bottom drops out. you will notice thursday and friday. going to reach into the 50s, so very low 60s across the bay area and this is a dramatic difference. if you like hot weather, enjoy the next few days. the rain and cooler temperatures are heading our way around the corner and that is a check of the forecast. back to you guys. >> thank you, elizabeth. and row mccarthy of the breakfast club and captain sully sullenberger are heading the luncheon. and it's an event where the chair joins us live this morning. >> good morning, ann, good morning, phil. >> quite a lineup of guests you have here. everyone from sully sullenberger, the flight to to the booker prize in england. what kind of format is it? they help from table-to-table?

8:49am
for a lot of people out there, you don't think about that until it goes bad. how do you make people care in. >> and part is to educate. exactly what you said. you don't think about it until it's too late. one of the facts is one in eight americans. there is lots of precursors, hyper tension, history and one in eight, americans are impacted by kidney disease. >> that is quite the statistic. >> the foundation does what? where does this moppy go? ask it prevention, caring for people. we hear about the transplants all of the time in. >> it goes to all of the above. we have the program for children. summer camp programs. >> really?

agree on. bay area traffic. we know that it can be horrible. you know, it may not be as bad as you think. now, contra costa traffic by far is the worst week day commute in the state, according to data compiled. california, the state, however, is only 10 worse in the nation. i don't know if that is braggable but in the golden state, three quarters of the commuters get it -- drive alone, 11% use carpool lanes and 5% use public transit. free parking by employers is a big reason why people drive alone. there is an incentive to turn that around. >> and there is a program in california not well-known. it's the law and called the cashout program. employers offer free parking to employers and they supposed to offer a subsidy. to take a bus instead, you are supposed to get the value of the parking space. >> women and minorities are likely to carpool and take

9:15am
charles monger senior, he's given nearly $23 million in contributions to that measure and opponents say it would increase the influence or strip from the rich. >> and the directorate san francisco state university joined us earlier opposed to prop 32 and here are his reasons. >> prop 32 is deliberately to sign to confuse them to get both people to mislead and get them to vote from the -- for the wrong reasons. it's designed to take special interest money to politics and in reality, it was written by and far in special interest and when i say it, i don't use that term lightly. i really think that it's one of the most fraudulent measures we're seeing in recent history, and that is recognized as such. you look at what all of the crooks in the country come and cause, the league of women
9:16am
voters say about it, they're dedicated to taking special interest out of politics and this is much, much worse. >> okay, on this point. >> yes. >> in your opinion, this said that you can still, union members can still contribute to a political committee that could be used -- >> right. >> and they would have to check. >> right. >> is that correct? >> it's designed to make it as difficult as possible for unions to raise money for politics and then to spend money, so, it prohibits the use of money raised by perriel reduction, how unions raise money for politics and not how they use them for great politics and that said unions are wired -- required to get permission from each member. even as it gets that, there is still not a lot to use mean by payroll deduction. the people who wrote prop 30 to
9:17am
know very well would have a devastating impact on the unions and to give affective advice to the members and the support and public education and public safety, et cetera, and, as i said before, it would have zero impact on wealthy corporations and billionaires and to the expense, you have to judge the propositions by the company to keep not just charles monger, but the wealthy super packs from out of state based in iowa and arizona pouring tens of millions into supporting prop 32, and we don't know who is funding -- . >> and we look at the voice. >> right. >> and the california teacher's association. >> right. >> the public employee's union, right? >> right. >> and they have a special interest here called pensions, payroll. >> right.
9:18am
>> and it's called local school elect. >> right. >> they a tremendous force in the state and some say contributed to the state's deficits and pension costs going through the receive. -- roof. >> right. >> and seems like there is no shortage of special have interest. >> and when the unions from the california's teacher's association contributes to this, you know who they're represent and that is the 325,000 members because we support the funding from public education and so forth and when this group, americans are responsible for leadership based in arizona contributes to it, who are they representing? we don't know. we don't know who the thunders are and as they take them to court this week, the superior court in sacramento said you must disclose your funders or californians will suffer irreparable damage if not. >> they're not going do that before the election.
9:19am
>> and we're going to appeal it so californians won't know who is giving money to the yes on 32 campaign before the e lex. >> well, this weekend, on the came -- before the election. >> this weekend on the campaign trail. >> the final push before the campaign and how hurricane sandy may have been a chaser. after the break. ,,,,
